Why does it seem like PA is seeing more tornadoes here than ever before increasing Pennsylvania hail damage across the state?
Most customers are unaware that tornadoes in Pennsylvania have increased in 2019 above average especially in April and May. Some attribute the increase in Pennsylvania hail damage to the tornadoes stemming from what some have dubbed the shifting of tornado alley1 eastward across the country.1
Does Macungie, PA get more hail than most U.S. cities?
Macungie ranks about 6% higher than the national average of all U.S. cities so hail and wind damage are more frequently expected in this area. In 1991 and 1998, Macungie, PA experienced F3 Tornadoes which caused significant damage to local residences and businesses. 1998 incurred over $1,000,000 in damages and 1991 near $500,000 due to roofing repairs and siding repairs.
